Since we had our last meet at the beginning of April, the Math Team is embarking on a journey to learn a little about coding using the TI Basic coding language built into the TI-84 calculators that the school has. We are following the units on Texas Instruments' TI 10 Minutes of code. Students will learn the basics of coding, including how to use variables, loops, conditional statements, and more! You can use the button below to explore the 10 Minutes of Code website.
YSCP hosted our last meet of the year on Wednesday, April 4th. Thank you to all of the staff helpers and parent volunteers who helped make this a successful meet at YSCP! And thanks to Mateo and Moorea (pictured below) who helped to clean up the MPR before the meet!

The YSCP Math Team went to our fourth Math League Meet of the year on Wednesday, February 28th. Though we did not have a full team at this meet, we still placed 7th overall. Our top scorer was Eli Rose. Congrats, team!
We have one more meet this year that we will be hosting at YSCP! It will be held on April 4th at 6pm.
YSCP was represented at the Centre County MathCounts Chapter Competition this year by 8 students. The YSCP official MathCounts team consisted of our four 8th graders: Ayla Dedeoglu, Nathan Duty, Ashrafur Khan, and Eli Rose. Competing as individuals were Mary Ayata and Eva Wilf. We also had two 5th graders who went to the competition unofficially to gain competition experience: Noah Ayata and Moorea Knapp.
The YSCP team placed 3rd in our division, and our top scorer was Eli Rose. Congratulations to all and well done!

We had our first Math League Meet on Wednesday, October 25th. Park Forest Middle School hosted teams from State College, Bald Eagle, Altoona, and YSCP middle schools. This was the very first meet for over half of our team, and overall we did well.
